What Vegans Eat – Day 1723

First Meal: It’s a big day today. There is a rally in front of city hall to support the vote to ban foie gras in NYC. The NYC Council is voting today and we want to show strong support for the ban in case the opposition shows up. I am recovering from a cold so…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1722

First Meal: Oatmeal is back, and super colorful with Pumpkin Seeds and Blueberries served in this gorgeous dish.   We also added Pears, Flax Seeds and Coconut. It’s been a while since we’ve had this for breakfast. I’ve missed you, Oatmeal!   Second Meal: We are both fighting colds here at home. Nothing sounds better…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1721

First Meal: The last of the Pumpkin Bread has been eaten and enjoyed, today with Almond Butter.   Second Meal: The last of the Cauliflower Potato soup has been eaten and enjoyed!   We also had Sautéed Escarole with Capers. Those were the last of the capers too that were eaten and enjoyed.   And…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1720

First Meal: I bought Dates the other day specifically to make my new Pumpkin Bread recipe with them instead of Brown Sugar. I got everything prepped, spices, Dates, Figs, Walnuts, Pumpkin Purée, Vanilla, Gluten-free Flour and Baking Powder.   I blended up the Dates and Pumpkin. It was not easy because the dates were on…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1719

First Meal: Our house is all stocked up with the good foods we love. Knowing I could make just about anything I decided to create my first Acai bowl. I blended frozen Acai with Bananas and Blueberries, topped it with Rolled Oats, Cacao Nibs, Strawberries and Pears. Let’s do this again!   I was still…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1718

How quickly the week flies by. It’s Friday again, or Mother’s Day, the day of the week that I visit mom. I usually have a list of things to do at her house when I arrive but today I am saturated. My plan is just to visit. No projects.   First Meal: I kept to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1717

First Meal: I have a lot to do today. I made a quick and satisfying soup with cooked Millet, Shiitake Mushrooms, Red Onions and a little Barley Miso.   Second Meal: I’m on a deadline and working to finish up today. Gary came to the rescue and served me a variation on the Asian Slaw…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1716

First Meal: Gary usually offers to share his morning tea with me, along with his expertly frothed milk. But I usually have my own pot of some green or white tea. Today I accepted, Teeccino with frothed Cashew Milk. This is decadent.   Time to finish the batch of Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1715

First Meal: After our big night out yesterday, we didn’t eat until afternoon. We do that a lot actually, not necessarily intentionally. It’s called intermittent fasting, waiting 12 to 16 hours between your last evening meal and your first meal the next day. I find it easy to do. Today’s first meal was a classic…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1714

I began the day slowly like I like to, with some tea and writing my pages for the Artist’s Way course Gary and I have started. I wasn’t hungry and so I didn’t eat. Gary and I took off for our walk around 12:30 or 1pm. A neighbor joined us for part of the walk.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1713

First Meal: Another day, a different waffle. Today I made the Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles. We are nuts over the Rawmio Hazlenut Spread. I put in on my waffles, one with Raspberry Coulis and the other with smashed Bananas.   Second Meal: Gary’s taking another go at his squash-based cheese sauce to perfect…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1712

First Meal: It’s the weekend, a good excuse for Fruity Corn Waffles. We have them already made so there’s another reason. Gary made a beautiful bowl of Raspberry Pear Coulis and brought out the Rawmio Hazelnut Spread and some Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Butter.   Second Meal: We go on a walk almost everyday. The usual…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1711

First Meal: The last of the Pinto Bean Soup is mine. I am having it for breakfast. It is good. Then it’s off to mom’s house for my weekly visit. I didn’t have anything planned to do for her. I was thinking it would be a relaxing visit. I took my time and did some…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1710

First Meal: We couldn’t wait to try the RawMio Halzelnut Spread. I made Fruity Corn Waffles to try the spread with along with Apricot Butter. This is so decadent! RawMio has coconut sugar in it. When we finish this jar (which will be soon because it’s too good) I will try to make my own…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1709

First Meal: I wanted to make Corn Pancakes. I wanted them to be thick and fluffy like at Dharma’s in Santa Cruz. I took the time to whip the Aquafaba, but it collapsed when I mixed it in the batter. I have to review some pancake recipes with aquafaba to learn what tricks are used.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1708

First Meal: We didn’t eat a lot yesterday but we did eat late. Intermittent fasting is when you wait 12-16 hours after your last meal of the day before you eat again the next day. We ate at 11pm last night, went to sleep late and got up late. Then we took a long walk.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1707

First Meal: If there’s a bean soup in the house, there’s a good chance I will have some for breakfast. That’s what I did with the Pinto Bean Stew, I warmed some up for breakfast.   Second Meal: Keeping things easy, I had more of the same later on for a late lunch, along with…

First Meal: Before going to sleep last night, Gary was texting with his cousin and Pumpkin Bread came up. Nancy was going to make some muffins in a day or two. Gary told me he wanted Pumpkin Bread. I told him I would make it in the morning and I did! It was simple. We…

Tea: Gary got up super early to go into Manhattan for an audition. He left me some freshly made Oatmeal and Chai Tea. I had the tea and skipped the Oats. I wasn’t hungry.   First Meal: I got myself ready and took the car to Toyota for some needed service. Then I went to…
